COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The distinctive India Pale Ale style was developed by British brewers in the 1700s in order to create a sturdy beer that could survive long sea journeys to far-flung colonies where troops eagerly awaited the arrival of this sublime liquid refreshment. Long Hammer takes the traditional IPA brewing process one step further by dry hopping, or adding hops at the end of the brewing process with Cascade hops to give a wonderful hop aroma but not the overpowering hop taste. Long Hammer IPA is the beer you find yourself reaching for again and again, no matter what the occasion. Long Hammer pairs nicely with grilled meats, seafood, Mexican, Indian, Thai or other spicy ethnic foods. Available year round.

Clear copper pour. White head. Aroma is floral pine with a citrus touch. Some sweet malt on the nose as well. Taste is caramel and Munich up front and slides into a dirty earth hop flavor with a smooth balanced finish. A little fruitiness on the tail end of a swig. Thin-medium in the mouth. Pretty tasty.

Sissio (648) - Orsenigo, ITALY - OCT 29, 2014
Deep gold, clear, minimal white head. Caramel maltiness, quite heavy, with aromatic hops (citruses, red orange, candy orange peel). Nice tastes, caramel malts, hoppy aromas and herbaceous bitterness, but not balanced.

piss yellow color, very little head. Aroma is one like a macro. Taste is not much better, very grainy hops are pretty minimal. Says 44, but doesnít taste like it. This isnít the deal youíve been looking for, move along...

Sessionable for sure. Quite sublte for an IPA, only 44 IBU, all the bitterness comes in the finish.

Solid IPA aroma. Good flavor with a fair amount of bitterness and after taste. Fairly drinkable and not too heavy to have more than one or two in a night.

wyzzywyz22 (1976) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle from Ship in a Bottle, West Kirby. Slightly hazy gold pour with a medium white head. Fragrant grassy hop present in the snout. Pleasant moutheel. Some decent tropical fruit and hop in the flavour. Dryish bitter finish. Straightforward and drinkable stuff. Possibly a bit harshly treated on here.

slowrunner77 (5986) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"clear, a little bland and bitter, without being quite aromatic enough for an ipa. for redhook, of who i am not a fan, this is a pretty solid effort, but i wonít buy it."

HKdIPA (263) - HONG KONG - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle at Pig and Butcher in London. Light gold pour. Aroma and flavor are standard IPA - nothing too exciting. Some apple, bitter, pine. Wouldn't get again.

Bork (262) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2014
As the style goes, this one shows off a mild but pronounced hop bitterness that delivers a different and quite pleasant experience. A little bit of soap lowers the score.

Clear amber pour from a bottle. Smells mostly of malt, slightly sweet with a little citrus backing it up. This is now my sixth, the more I have the more I like them... You get the ale with a dry hoppy finish but not overpowering, I dare say itís pretty sessionable, perhaps an ISA???

An IPA with nothing to write home about. Clear yellow with a nose of citrus. Taste has citrus and resin with caramel malt.
